Subject: Best "Eyes" ever..
I missed a great New Years Eve party so I could stay home and tape the live broadcast of this concert. I was living in New York at the time which meant it did not start until around 1:30 AM. I missed hearing part of the concert live because I fell asleep, but I still managed to record the whole thing. I was awake to hear the most magnificent "Eyes" ever! Over the years I whenever i needed cheering-up I would pop this tape in my cassette and let the magic take me away. The tape finally bit the dust a couple years ago and I had thought I might never hear those golden tones again...yet, here it is on the web...just as beautiful as I remember it.

Subject: Still one of my top 5 Eyes.....
Listened to this while at a party at friend's co-op in NYC. The sometimes lengthy breaks between songs in the first set was aggravating, but it's what you dealt with back then in exchange for the live FM broadcast. That aside, some lackluster moment, some standard late '83/early '84 fare, and some absolute standouts. The jam on Throwing Stones was reminiscent of some earlier spacey ones [Hartford 10/15/83], but shorter and with more intensity from Jerry. The Estimated got things rolling. Then the Eyes..... while not the longest, the second instrumental was one of the tightest I've ever heard. Fast and tight, the way many things should be!!!! Other well played, albeit "standard fare" included Minglewood and Candy Man....... All in all, representative of the era with a few standouts. Last comments..... Jerry's voice was hurting and other than Spring and much of Summer 1987, was downhill from here..... and, no rating because I wasn't there. If I were to try to rate it.... Based on song selection and quality of performance, I'd say 3 stars overall; 5 stars for the recording quality [no surprise given the source]; I suspect the crowd energy at any NYE show would be through the roof, so suspect the vibe would have been 4 or 5 stars..... though that is pure speculation... and why I only rate the ones I was at.....

I really loved every song from start to finish. The "Eyes" was amazing. probably one of the best UP-TEMPO versions I've heard in a while.
